For dessert, I made an assortment of cakes, muffins, and cookies. I also served lots of fresh fruit and dark chocolate. For drinks, I had warm cider, an assortment of teas, and coffee. Planning out the menu and preparing the food has become a favorite aspect of these workshops. I love the challenge of cooking and baking for a large crowd (Joe and I usually live off the leftovers for a few days), transporting the food, and then setting everything up on site. Maybe one of these days I'll host a workshop/dinner at my own home where I can simply prepare and serve the food!
I've said it again and again....Over the past year, I have been incredibly blessed to become good friends with many of the people who attended these Kinfolk workshops. One of these friends, Don, put together this lovely video of our time together in December. Don's since moved out to Seattle for an exciting new job, and I can't wait to see what he does out there! He'll be back in the spring to film a video project I'm working on with Joy from Mornings Like These!
Thank you, Don, for taking the time to put together this stunning video! And thank you to all our partners who made the workshop possible!
